Native American Repatriation in the U.S.: Shifts in Access and Knowledge

In 1990 the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) became law, legislating the return of American Indian and Native Hawaiian human remains and items of cultural patrimony by U.S. federal agencies and museums receiving federal funding.

In anticipation of the 25-year anniversary of the law, the Yale Public Humanities Working Group & the Yale Study Group for Native America are honored to host a discussion about U.S. repatriation laws, reburials, museum stewardship of Native collections, and the changing relationships between Native tribes and museums.

Panelists include:

  • Ashley Dalton, Yale College
  • Dr. Rae Gould (Nipmuc), University of Massachusetts Amherst
  • Jackie Swift (Fort Sill Apache/Comanche), Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian

Food and refreshments will be served.
